If you’re determined to make a difference, voraciously curious and brimming with entrepreneurial spirit, we’d like to hear from you.

The Job

The technology team in Mind Gym is newly created. We are working on a greenfield technology platform build that will transform the business. As an engineering lead you will spend roughly 80% of your time as an individual contributor and 20% on team leadership & management. Our tech stack includes an event driven NodeJS, TypeScript and Vue platform. For infrastructure we use AWS and Serverless techniques alongside a modern DevOps stack

What you'll be doing

  • Being a champion of a generative team culture with high co-operation, shared risks, encouraged bridging and blame free post-mortems

  • 121s, coaching and mentoring with members of your team or interviewing for new talent

  • Working as part of a cross functional “mission team” to design, document and implement new features.

  • Getting involved with normal agile ceremonies that prepare, co-ordinate and reflect on the team’s throughput.

  • Running, operating and caring for the platform that we build.

  • Tracking and improving software delivery performance with the “four key metrics”

  • Following great engineering practices with clean code, TDD and only building what you need

  • You have either line managed before or have aspirations to in the future

  • You enjoy helping teams improve their software delivery practices

  • Experience throughout the stack with Node, Typescript and Vue

  • Experience of building large high-throughput web applications with a distributed microservice backend (synchronous and asynchronous communication)

  • Expert in one part of the stack and proficient in the rest

  • Critical thinking on when to build vs buy

  • Cloud native in AWS or GCP

Desirable

  • You know how which levers accelerate delivery with the “4 key metrics”

  • Good experience of accelerating / de-risking delivery with DevOps practices (TDD, CD pipelines, configuration management etc..)

  • Your full stack extends to Lamba and Serverless

 

If this role sounds like something you’d be great at, we’d love to hear from you.
